The MK5CBC-T is a Cort Curbow® shape soapbar for the bridge position. The dual coil design features powerful lows and low-mids - bright treble.

The "Classic Bass" series bass pickups are passive designs featuring an extended and more resonant frequency range. They have far more "air" and definition at the top without sacrificing lows and low mids. They are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.

US Made Replacement/Upgrade for the MK-1 pickups found in some Ibanez, Cort, Lakland and others.

Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.


  • Length = 4.24"(107.57mm) Width = 1.33"(33.66mm)

Please Note:Bartolini does not provide screws with their pickups. If you need pickup screws, you can get them on the Pickup Screws page.

MK5CBC are an awesome replacement for the MK1s
By Christopher Thomas
I have a Lakeland 55-01 and was looking for an upgrade to the stock MK1s. The MK5CBC were a perfect fit and the Bartolini tone is just fantastic. I was thinking of going the Nordstrands, but wanted to keep a more modern sound and the Bartolini's are spot on. I have a Glockenklang preamp in the bass and I really can't find a bad tone. Oh, and Max from BestBassGear was just outstanding in helping me figure all this out. Will definitely buy from them again.

Bought this pup as a replacement for my MK1 pup. Matches well to my other MK1 in the neck position. Also installed Glockenklang 4-bamd pre-amp in my Cort B5 and she has never sounded so sweet and musical. Thanks to BBG for the good service!
